Fortune package and copyright
I have packaged an unofficial Debian package containing French fortunes
cookies, and I'd like to upload it into the Debian archive.
For that, I have to verify the copyright is compliant which the DFSG, but
there is either no copyright, or "presumed to be in public domain".
On debian-user-french, I have been told that each fortune itself is a
quotation, and it this legal to include it, as long as it is no longer
than 4 lines. However, the source package itself, which includes all the
fortunes, needs a copyright from the person which has compiled that.
Could anybody confirm that, so I can contact each author and ask him for
a correct copyright file ?
